Awesome Addition to your Synergy 3 Experience

Creative Journey Studios is excited to offer a wonderful polymer experience – two days of sharing polymer ideas with Dani Torres and Natalia Garcia de Leaniz. This class will be held in advance of Synergy 3 on March 10th and 11th at the Studios in Buford, Georgia. This dynamic couple from Spain presents new ideas for working with their favorite art material – polymer clay.

Natalia will lead you back to the retro world of the sixties while exploring color and textures, combining different types of free cuts - straight, curved and conical - to build chunky and eye-catching beads.


Natalia will cover two kinds of beads that bring together many different techniques, each one more useful, quick and easy to enjoy: free hand blade and craft knife cutting, drilling, texturing, Skinner-blending, and using liquid clay. She will then help you combine them to make bracelets and necklaces, looping for the perfect balance from bead to focal, from form to color.

Dani will share his particular interest in hollow forms, where polymer clay's unique capabilities to balance lightness and structural robustness meet the endless possibilities for inspiration, ever most beautiful, offered by Nature. In this class Dani will help you create super-hollow pieces to wear. He’ll share views and tips on design, balance and composition to fabricate ethereal beads and bracelets.

If you are coming to Synergy 3, we hope you will expand your visit by taking advantage of this opportunity to learn from these international superstars! Experience a mini-retreat at Creative Journey Studios, where an intimate teaching environment with a gallery and study collection full of inspiration will breathe new life into your polymer art.
